Catch all the action in crystal-clear HD

There's nothing more depressing than watching a game in standard def. Everything looks so compressed, blurry and downright sad. For a few years now, DIRECTV has required EVERY premium sports plan (which customers pay for) to broadcast in the highest-quality HD available (for most, that's 1080p). High definition kicks every play, move and shot to a whole new level of satisfaction. Even better, you can record the match in the same HD resolution and playback the key moments as often as you like (warning: umpires won't approve :).

If you want the best in sports, don't settle for less

Bottom line, DIRECTV trumps the competition when it comes to sports coverage. They not only have the top plan (NFL SUNDAY TICKET) but they seamlessly and intelligently connect each package. For example, you can easily switch from MLB and NFL games and follow all the day's scores via their real-time scoreboard. It's a sports lover's paradise, all from the comfort of your living room. If you put the fan in fanatic and are generally unhappy with DISH or cable, DIRECTV's sports options may just be reason enough to switch.
